Answer:  Ian Stewart (was removed from the official line up in 1963, but continued as a touring member until his death in 1985 - Wikipedia)


 

New Question: This artist holds the RIAA record for best selling album at 33 million certified copies sold. Who is the artist and what is the album?


At the time that I wrote this question, the answer was Michael Jackson's Thriller. It has now been surpassed by The Eagles with The Eagles Greatest Hits at 38 million, as announced by the RIAA today.

@angeleyes64 - There doesn't seem to be any interest in creating a trivia game. Maybe it's just too time consuming to come up with Q&A's. 

 

Anyway, I believe the answer to your question is - The Who.

Yes, that's correct!

Story goes that they met up at someone's house in Laurel Canyon CA while Nash was there visiting girlfriend Joni Mitchell. He added a third harmony to what Crosby and Stills were singing and the rest is history. The term supergroup may have first been used to describe CSN as all three were well known artists from previous bands. However, journalists usually point to Cream as the original supergroup. CSN and Cream are usually the top two of almost every list of greatest supergroups.

 

@angeleyes64 - You get to ask the next trivia question.

First question (easy one):  In 1968, a chance meeting and jam session brought together the formation of what would become one of rock's most famous supergroups. Who are they?


Hint:  This trio released their first, self-titled, album in 1969 which went on to multi-platinum status, and are well known for their intricate vocal harmonies.
